Scania gas trucks for Italian CST Logistica Trasporti
04 DECEMBER 2023
In 1984, Roberto Scarpa began his journey in the world of transport. Since then he has continued that path, counting 350 trucks to date, and with the next generation Scarpa in the business.
CST Logistica Trasporti deals with freight transport, in northern and central Italy, with food at room temperature and controlled temperature as a specialty. The constant renewal of their fleet gives greater efficiency and lower environmental impact, the latest addition being Scania gas trucks.
The next generation Scarpa
Lisa Scarpa is the Integrated Management System Manager at CST Logistica Trasporti in Scorzè. She takes care of the certifications for the company and ensures they fulfil the ratings. “We face a transition to sustainable transport, and with our Scania gas truck, we have our environment in mind.” Lisa’s father Roberto founded the company nearly 40 years ago, starting out with a van. And now – 350 trucks and just as many employees.

A choice for the environment
In 2017, a decision was made to do an ecological transition and the first fifty vehicles that run on natural gas and biogas were delivered. “Some of our customers have started to request a more environmental-friendly transport, so we are listening to them.” It is also a way for the company to differentiate itself from the competition.
What CST Logistica Trasporti also does is collaborate with Scania in general, and Scania Finance Italy: “They are a partner we can talk to, that sees our opportunities, allowing us to expand through a relationship built on trust and professionalism. They understand that we want this to grow, and do our part in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.”
The drivers are of course vital for the business, and Scarpa realises it is not always an easy role to have, with the responsibility to deliver the goods on time. ”We have been doing this for almost 40 years. We know the importance of great trucks, drivers, and infrastructure.”
And it seems this is barely the beginning: “We started this path, and it is one we will follow. With our transports, we are a part of a chain, where sustainability is definitely the way,” Scarpa concludes.
Driving customer profitability through sustainable solutions and responsible business are complementary long-term perspectives for being a profitable company.
